A tree planting event is part of the University’s ‘Strathclyde Commitment’ – a community benefit programme which involves a range of local projects with an emphasis on apprenticeships and engaging with community groups and initiatives.” The CHP District Heating system is part of a £650m investment over ten years by Strathclyde in its campus infrastructure and will reduce the university’s carbon-dioxide emissions by 4,500 tonnes and save £2m annually. Vital Energi are designing and installing the new low carbon system. The system, part-funded by the Scottish Funding Council, will see a new 3.3MWe CHP engine and 24MW of boiler plant located in a new Energy Centre on John Street deliver both heating and electricity via 2,000 meters of pipes and over 1,000 meters of cable. The network can be expanded in future.
